You can find links to the various train sites where you can make reservations and a lot of useful tips on rail passes and train travel in Europe in general on this site: http://www.seat61.com/ See: How do you make reservations or pay supplements with your rail pass? on this page in particular: http://www.seat61.com/Railpass.htm#reservations%20... . It can be cheaper just to make the reservation directly with the national train systems rather than booking with a third-party. For example, on the Trenitalia site http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html select the train you want to reserve and then on the fares & preferences page use the "more fares" pull down menu and select Global pass to make a reservation to be used with a pass. You'll be able to pick up the ticket at a ticket booth or machine at your departure station.
You can always just make reservations in the stations here while you're traveling. For most trains and routes it won't be a problem, but there are some popular trains like the night trains between Paris and Florence/Rome or Venice that do sell out sometimes.

Eurail only sell the train passes. Most people make reservations at train stations once they get to Europe. But if you need to make reservations in advance, useful if it's a train route that is popular, then you need to go through either a company like Rail Europe or use a travel agent.
